Hi, I've got a malware issue. How I ended up with it in my system is simple:
I was looking for cheat codes on the web, then I looked for trainer programmes. One site that came up was called newpc.com. The actual file I downloaded has 'mysteriously' disappeared. But it was located, more or less, at this download point on the site: x-com-2-trainer-9.
I'm too scared to go back to that site to investigate further - I don't have the geek knowledge to risk it. I've run a couple of anti-malware programmes, downloading them into my documents folder, but they don't seem to be there anymore. There's been weird activity such as:
1) A window that dims everything on screen except for it, and refers to the current programme I'm using as follows, and this isn't exactly the language, "Many people who use Chrome also use the following programmes. 'Something something' would you like to install them?" There's no exit or cancel key, just a 'next'. I close the programme by hitting the 'x' on the window. "Are you sure you want to quit?" Yes, I frigging am. Especially when it opens while I'm playing Star Wars: Battlefront, and it minimises the game just to try convince me to add more malware onto my system.
2) A weird Japanese or Chinese alphabet based programme that loads when I start up my computer, and features some sort of small round circle on my desktop with a rocket ship. If I click on it, the rocket ship flies off the circle and up my desktop. It's a mission to close it, and one of the key images in this app is a penguin with a red scarf.
3) RegClean Pro, which automatically decides to scan my computer for "registry issues" and tries to convince me to buy it when I try and close it. It even installed an icon on my desktop.
4) It forces my browser to open on 'yoursearch' a web search engine.
I've attached the files.
